lags - fps drops

Postby K786 » 12 Apr 2012 00:08

- I honestly don't know if its my pc or my set up but sometimes my game lag so much especially with more people. My fps would keep going from 90 to 30 and that frustrates me a lot. Maybe you guys could help me also with this. Maybe i simply put some wrong set up for game. I tried lowering all video quality but still sometimes its unplayable.
btw my pc is:

processor: Intel Celeron E1400 @ 2Ghz (2 CPUs)
2 gb ram
video card: nividia geforce 9400 gt

- my father is color blind but completely, and my condition is not like his, but for me I sometimes cant see blue players. But I'm not sure if everyone is like this, but even when I put highest brightness I would sometimes just see like wall. Only I would shoot if he shoot at me when I can see gun effect. This is why i prefer playing as blue.

about the blue players: try tac googles and test out all the colors in the GAME OPTIONS -> GENERAL -> TAC GOGGLES COLOR

i prefer cyan as i have troule telling red players apart from brick walls.

if you cant see blue players, you might try yellow or whatever else works.

its a hassle at first, but if you have a visual handycap and keep training with tacs, soon you wont play without.

just ake sure in TEAM INFO SETTINGS you enable SHOW TEAMMATE INFO ON AIM and LOCATION: ABOVE CROSSHAIR.
helps to keep the TKs down.

I took picture of my system options. Here they are:

I can take photos of game options if needed.

Edit: Barkay I kind of got used to play with kevlar, helmet + laser so no space for tacs xD. And anyways I kind of like to look without them, somehow less stress on eyes.

Well anyways thanks for helping. =)
I don't have problem in smaller server, but on servers with 25+ players it gets brutal for me =(. And it happens I enjoy playing on those mass servers most =(.

Did you try to deactive blood?
It's pretty ressource intensive.. And tbh, it's neither really needed.. so try deactivating blood!!

hmm, I never actually thought about that. I will try now and see if its any better without blood.

Edit: after 2 maps, I think this blood thing actually improved my fps. It would still drop in some situation but overall I think its improvement. Thanks man =).

Speaking of resource intense, there's also smoke. Kill all smokers before they can throw their grenades and voilà! No more FPS drops :P
